History of the Library: Garden of Symbols


The Garden of Symbols is a unique fountain with water seeping from two sandstone spires. It is surrounded by symbols of communication including ancient and modern alphabets. This work was funded through the 1% for Art Program of the Utah Arts Council. The artist, selected in a national competition, was David Philips of Somerville, Massachusetts. The monoliths are local sandstone from Cedar Canyon. The sandstone panels are from a quarry at Torrey, Utah.
